Beckopox VEH 2188w/55WA is truly a new generation amine hardener for two component waterborne epoxy systems. This hydrophobically modified hardener offers exceptional corrosion performance on cold rolled steel, pre-treated steel, and blasted steel substrates. Until now, waterborne epoxy systems offered very good adhesion but lagged behind in corrosion performance. Formulations using Beckopox VEH 2188w/55WA with high performance epoxy dispersions like Beckopox EP 384w/53WA or VEP 2381w/55WA can achieve 1,000 hours of corrosion resistance without failure.
Beckopox EP 384w/53WAMP and Beckopox EH 623w/80WA are fast becoming the workhorses in industrial coatings applications. This fully waterborne system is well suited for damp or newly poured concrete as well as aged aggregate substrates. Sealers, prime coats and topcoats can be developed. This combination offers very small particle size for excellent penetration and a good balance of pot-life with hardness development.
Beckopox VEX 2200w/25WA is an epoxy modified polyvinyl butyral waterborne dispersion and is used in combination with Beckopox VEM 2201w/45WA for wash primer applications. This system has outstanding adhesion to a wide variety of ferrous, non-ferrous and non-metallic substrates. It has exceptional dry time and hardness development properties. Extremely low VOCs are achievable. Additionally, this novel system can be top coated with a wide variety of solvent-borne and waterborne systems.
Beckopox VEH 2849w/80WA is a new waterborne epoxy hardener for use with Beckopox VEP 2390w/75MP epoxy resin for zinc rich primer formulations. This is a two-component waterborne system that will yield the corrosion protection typically expected of a standard solvent-borne product. Over 4,000 hours of salt spray resistance over shot blasted or zinc plated steel can be realized.
Daotan VTW 6470w/39WA is a hydroxyl functional waterborne polyurethane dispersion that has exceptional resistance properties for industrial, maintenance and transportation applications. This product is well suited for harsh environments and is designed for topcoat applications using conventional isocyanate crosslinkers. The chemical and abrasion resistance is unmatched in the industry.
Daotan VTW 6462w/36WA is a self-crosslinking, zero VOC hydroxyl functional waterborne polyurethane dispersion developed for high performance coatings where toughness, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance properties are required. This versatile polymer can be air-dried, force dried or crosslinked depending on the end use requirements and has adhesion to a wide variety of plastics.
Duroxyn VEF 4380w/35WA is a waterborne epoxy ester dispersion for corrosion resistant primers, direct to metal coatings and topcoats. Corrosion performance is consistent across a wide variety of substrates. Performance and stability are consistent from batch to batch and over time, unlike conventional epoxy ester solution polymers. 500 hours salt spray resistance is possible even at low film builds on untreated cold rolled steel.
Macrynal VSM 6299w/42WA and Macrynal VSM 6285w/42WABDG are designed for two-component isocyanate crosslinked coatings. Coatings developed with these waterborne dispersions feature excellent weather resistance, outstanding gloss and exceptional hardness even at room temperature cure. Blends of conventional isocyanates with hydrophilic isocyanates can be hand stirred in to these products.
Macrynal VSM 1004/75LG is a high performance, high solids acrylic resin for the transportation refinish market. This HAPs free polymer, crosslinked with a high solids isocyanate offers a 30 minute dry time and a two hour pot-life. The flow and leveling is unmatched in the industry for this application.
Resydrol AM 224w/40WA is a waterborne alkyd dispersion for industrial bake finishes. In combination with a melamine crosslinker like Resimene 747, it provides a super combination of hardness, solvent resistance and impact resistance. Formulations using Resydrol AM 224w/40WA can achieve gloss greater than 95% at 20 angle with VOC under 150 g/L.
Resydrol VAN 6113w/52WALG is a new polymer developed for plastic applications. It offers excellent alcohol and stain resistance along with superior adhesion to polystyrene, ABS, PVC, acrylic and polycarbonate. This dispersion is well suited for TV and audio cabinets, medical and computer housings and other industrial plastic applications where toughness, abrasion resistance, household chemical resistance and high hardness are required.
